Buyaka: The Ultimate Dancehall Collection (1994)


Details Lead Performance: Various Artists; Genre: Reggae/Ska

Major label Atlantic enters the fray with this mild, middle-of-the-road disc, Buyaka: The Ultimate Dancehall Collection. It contains no clunkers, but no transcendent moments, either. With tracks like "Bad Boys Reply," Don-T's dancehall remix of Inner Circle's Grammy-winning TV theme, Buyaka fails to live up to its boastful title but may appeal to those who aren't ready for the truly heavy stuff yet.
